Thanksgiving.— The national festival was a day of lovely weather and but lit tle business was done at the several trading points. About sixty couples were present at the dance given at Mt Idaho, and the assemblage was the most orderly wo have had in a long time, l'lie young people had a most enjoyable time and relished the fine supper served for the occasion at the hotel by Mr. Brown. The festivities were continued until daylight, when all adjourned home öatibtiüd with their enjoyment. Hay. —During the cold snap last week the price of hay climbed ot sight, but it soon dropped to normal rates when the Thanksgiving chinook began to get in its fine work on the away up out it .

Secretary Lamar said tiie other day that if these reports were true he ought to be serving a life term in the penitentiary, and on the other hand ins endowments were from the highest men in the land and would justify the president in appointing him office in his gift. Tiie dirty dogs who assail Frank Parker's character have no more reputation to lose than a common harlot.
